shrimp(what type of wood)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Was just wondering what type of wood do you use to smoke shrimp. I have always used hickory or oak, to do chicken or beef . Thought would try shrimp

I like a sweeter wood like apple or cherry but anything that you normally like will work. How are you thinking about doing the shrimp?

Shrimp take such a short time that I think a stronger wood would be more appropriate. I like hickory.

Never smoked shrimp yet but, I had mesquite smoked shrimp at a steak house and they were awesome. I think they just had a light smoke to them.

Chef,if you can get Cherry,it is great on seafood;if you can't get any down there,I would be willing to trade something.I find good Cherry up here all the time,and the price is good.If interested,PM me and we'll talk.

IMO, just the smoke from peach has one of the most delectable aromas. Peach smoke ranks right up there with Hoppe's 9 for good smells in my book. 'Course, I don't think that cooking with Hoppe's 9 would be such a good idea.
